Great bar food\burger joint

I have been here for lunch and dinner, and they serve great food. There is a wide variety of burgers and they offer a great selection of old fashioned milkshakes with many flavors. We have loved the fried pickles appetizer and the burgers are great. It is not a big place, so I am sure that... read more

The food is very good ! They have outside seating. This place is always packed; doesn't matter what time of year. Get there early; especially on a weekend !

We stopped for lunch on a Friday because we couldn't get into Bill's. I ordered a chicken cubano burger and was disappointed as I thought it would be a ground chicken burger, but it was a chicken breast. My husband ordered his burger pink, but it was charred in parts. My daughters enjoyed their burgers.

Very reminiscent of Plan B, but with their own varied menu. Burgers we had were excellent, we asked for MEDUIM, and they were cooked to perfection, and absolutely juicy. The appetizers were awesome, from the loaded waffle fries to the fried pickles.

We have been back 3x now...Haywire offers a variety of great Burgers with different sides including very good sweet potatoe fries. The place seems to be very popular - be prepared for a wait on weekend evenings. And even when you get a table, be prepared to wait again for your order. It is worth it.

Second time here. Long wait on a Saturday night, but there is ample seating. I ordered the spinach salad. Sounds boring but it was so good that I did not have to add the dressing provided on the side. The bacon was plenty and super crispy, and the red pepper stripes (fresh not canned) were so warm that they wilted... More

Ate at Haywire while visiting CT with 4 other friends. Four of us had burgers and I had the most delicious fish tacos I've every eaten - blackened, spicy and delicious. I also had the 1/2 wedge salad (I don't eat fries) which was delicious. My husband had a lamb burger which he rated as 12 stars out of 10.... More

Loved the burgers, service: depends on the crew. Got to try the sunny burger and the haywire one. The milkshakes are to die for, best chocolate one I ever had.
